The dual Resilience Australia Award winning book Are U Ready was written in response to a clear lack of pragmatic and relevant resources for small businesses to assist with planning, preparation and response to disaster.
"This book will become an invaluable aid to preparing for disaster, and as the authors suggest, it may be unique of its type. The authors have struck a good mix of personal anecdote, research findings and professional observations to make the problems real but not overwhelming. They provide detailed examples to help in working out what needs to be done, explaining what the problems are and how they may be approached. While the book is certainly a manual to guide planning and preparation, more importantly, it is a wakeup call and a consciousness raising based on the hard work and sometimes painful experience of the authors, who have shared their stories and their learning in a frank and generous way. It was rewarding for me to work with them during the Black Saturday recovery and I believe this to be a unique and valuable contribution to arise out of that painful event. I recommend this book to everyone who runs a small business or any sort of enterprise that is worth protecting from destruction."

How do they do it? is an easily read, information packed short read that provides insight into the 5 steps for creating a successful small business.
These 5 steps are…
Step 1 – know where you are
Step 2 – know where you are going
Step 3 – decide your income
Step 4 – tell the world
Step 5 – manage for success rather than for avoiding failure
So, if you’re like many small business owners around the world, you’re probably working hard, working long hours and spending less and less time with family & friends.
It's also highly likely you're feeling stressed AND, as the demands of your business has grown, have probably felt on many occasions (or possibly feel right now) that you’re like a hamster on a wheel – running (working) hard and getting nowhere fast.
If this picture sounds or feels familiar THEN How do they do it? 5 steps for creating a successful small business might just be a simple, quick and great start to claiming your life back.
Dream to Reality was a book I wrote several years ago that recognises how we all have dreams about a better future but often fail to achieve them.
I take readers on a journey of self-discovery and provide a series of tools to...
recognise self-imposed limitations
take an audit of skills they have
identify skills they might need to create the desired future
get clear about their passion and purpose
create a plan for the future
offer tools and tip to stay on track
Hopefully this book might offer some insights, tools and tips to help you break free when you feel stuck in a rut or when you feel progress is as tough as plodding through treacle.
